    Here are the roll call votes on HB 1068 and HB 1065. I've also included a first hand account from a very reliable source who was present during the passage of these bills and the embarrassing display of an Indiana state representative, Rep. Vernon Smith (D) District 14 in Gary, IN. I've seen this guy in action before.

    This is a prime example of why some of these mindless legislators need to be voted out of office. Childless behavior like this is unacceptable in public, but this took place in our state's capital. No dignity, no respect and completely inexcusable.

    "Rep. Vernon Smith (D-14) spoke against the Parking Lot bill (HB 1065). He got up and said, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em". Then he put on a trucker hat backwards, said that was the closest thing he had to an NRA hat, pulled out a toy revolver and shot it a couple of times in the air, and then said he was a member of the NRA, he wanted to return to the "Wild West", he believed in signing up babies for membership in NRA, and he thought we should all pack Colt .45s in our kids' school lunches."

    "He said that when he gave his tithe at church, he thought his reward should be a gun. He said when he goes to the casinos, instead of winnings in money, he wanted his winnings in guns."

    Rep. Smith then repeated, "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em". He said he knows the Parking Lot legislation is going to pass, because Indiana belongs to the NRA and "Indiana pledges allegiance not to the flag, but to the NRA."

    He said he knew a lot of people were going to vote for it, but he hoped people would think long and hard before casting their votes and that it wouldn't prevent them from getting a good night's sleep.

    I like his idea of the reward at casinos, but when you tithe your reward is spiritual. I'd love to see a video of the above antics...

    Why am I cursed with the worst representation in the nation? Ed Delaney votes no on both bills. I had emailed him asking for support prior to the vote. On the national level, I've got Prince Carson representing me.

    Arrrrggghhhhh. I need to move.
